Sweetly Saturday

"Gratitude turns what we have into enough."  I have no idea who said this, but it's true.  Every time I think I need more, I have to remind myself of everything I already have, and how blessed I am.  My cup runneth over, so to speak :).

I have a safe, affordable place to live.

I have food in my fridge.

I have a cat who serves as a back-up alarm clock.

I have a steady paycheck.

I am mostly healthy.

I have transportation.

I am able to freely express myself.

I have supportive people around me that believe in me.

I know it's a generic list this week.  Usually I like to get specific, but lately I feel like these are the things I take for granted.  It is easy to forget that there are a lot of people who can only claim one or two of these things for themselves, and look how many I am able to claim.

On a side note, this weekend is looking like it has the makings of being incredible!  Hope your plans are going to come together for some great times too!

  1. I just read a study that said people who express gratitude for what they have at least once a week are overall much healthier.
    Good for you for taking the time to be grateful!
    Also, I'm from Colorado too :)
